“Hooked on Grouper”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

My two sons and I were recently fortunate enough to go fishing with Captain Stewart. The day was beautiful and the action steady with a variety of fish! Awesome boat, gear and plenty of bait. Great fishing guide...kind of like fishing with a buddy. Once the fish are fileted and bagged, make sure to ask Captain Stewart for directions to Magnolia Grille !

“Excellent Fishing Guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

We had a great day on the water with Capt. Ames. He's very knowledgeable and honest. Per his recommendation we went offshore looking for grouper and we caught quite a few. Unfortunately we caught 5 within a half inch of the slot limit for keeping but they were super fun to catch. He's a great guide and an even better person.

Did a half day fishing trip catching 35 inch Snook. Captain Ames is an excellent instructor for a couple of salt water novices. Beautiful boat, great equipment, highly recommended !

“Well Done Fishing Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

A little bit of a late start, but Captain Stewart was great at communicating where he was and when he wouldf be arriving. He kept our appointment depsite having to use another boat as his was being upgraded at the time. In any case, he was a terrific guide, put us right on the fish and we all caught something, including some big grouper, and highlighted by a big old Kingfish that took us over 30 minutes to reel in. A great guide, and you really will catch stuff!

“A Pro's Pro”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

After hiring most every high profile fishing Captain from New Port Richey south to Fort Meyers I have to say that this man Captain Stewart Ames, is really the Pro's Pro. Not only has he been the most knowledgeable, hard working, gentlemanly Captain I've hired in the past 30 years he also is very flexible with those in his boat. If the fish are biting he'll know where and when and not waste your time driving you around and spending your money on scenery. It should be called "Gone Catching Charters" because that's all we did, catch, catch, and catch. On my most recent trip a week or two ago he put my son and I on all the trout, giant reds and snook we could handle. My son and I had more fun together than we've had in years and booked two more trips with him in July. One trip with Capt. Ames and you'll be hooked. Definitely worth every penny you can muster up.
